Clarkslegal Employment Solicitor Sebastian Reyes publishes in The Global Recruiter Magazine on the employment law liability of recruitment outsource processing (RPO).
Recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) has traditionally been used by employers to save costs and streamline volume applications. One of the issues of RPO is where does the employment law liability lie?
The Equality Act (EqA) 2010 offers protections during the recruitment stage, the types of employment law claims that can arise under the EqA 2010 are victimisation, and harassment. Job applicants who have protected characteristics such as race, age, disability, religion or belief, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, sex, sexual orientation have the right to not be discriminated against.
